The Fool on the Hill of Neo Nibu is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Fool on the Hill with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 29.498 billion Neo Nibuans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government is dominated by the Department of Education, with Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Holy Cloud City Neotopia. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Neo Nibuan economy, worth a remarkable 5,275 trillion Trav Kharian Gold Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 178,851 Trav Kharian Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, and prudishness is on the way out. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo Nibu's national animal is the Walrus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Hippy Love.

Neo Nibu is ranked 16,020th in the world and 2nd in Trav khar for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 6,593.78 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
